Steakhouse by Špela Čadež

Steakhouse by Špela Čadež

Slovenian director Špela Čadež (Boles, Nighthawk)  prepares her new analogue multiplane, cut-out animated film, Steakhouse. The film is a co-production between Finta Studio (Slovenia), Fabian & Fred (Germany) and MIYU (France).

In the film, Franc takes great pleasure in preparing a steak. On the other side of the city Liza is hurrying from work. The apartment is thoroughly engulfed in smoke. She extinguishes the damage, but the anger growing in Franc cannot be extinguished so easily.

Watch the trailer:

Čadež is a master of mismatched situations on screen on the verge of disruption; the trailer only confirms that.

The film will have its world premiere at the 74th Locarno Film Festival, 4-14 August 2021 (Section: Pardi di Domani)
